Flash 'Toon Screen Shot Preview


Here's a screen shot at the half way point of my cartoon effort.
It's getting easier each time I fight it work on it, as I've slowly learning what works and what doesn't.
I can never predict what parts will be easy or hard.
For example, I dreaded animating the phone cord to the point of leaving it out, but it wasn't as much trouble. But a scene where the purple guy gets shoved in the wall? It drove me crazy trying to get it right!

I'm glad you're not rushing it, because it looks spectacular.

p.s. I love the red color above his head--it really makes the whole thing zing.

Thanks, Stray, Linda,
The red thing over his head was originally bright green. Glad I switched it.

EXCITING! You probably know this, but something like a phone cord you could draw with the pencil tool and use a shape tween without it getting all goofy the way brush line tweens often do.

Namowal said...

You guessed it, Sally!
I don't use the pencil tool much, but I used it for the phone cord.

so these are drawn in Flash, right?

Namowal said...

Yep, stray g. These were all drawn in Flash. Thanks for asking. :)
